Welcome to the April 2019 edition of the Rhoscolyn community website. It has been developed to serve the local community of Rhoscolyn and Four Mile Bridge and its visitors.
We hope you will have a good look round it. We want it to promote the image of the area, and to help everyone to make the most of what it has to offer. Rhoscolyn is a beautiful village, with fine sandy beaches and lovely countryside. With its sheltered bay, Borth Wen, it is a great spot for families as well as for sailors, kayakers and walkers. And the views from its two headlands are spectacular. Its beautiful church, St Gwenfaen’s, sits proudly on the hill overlooking the village and the sea. The very popular White Eagle, which serves some of the best food on Anglesey, is on the lane down to the beach.
On this Rhoscolyn website you will also find some history and general background, including the facilities on offer locally, places to visit and things to see.
We aim to keep the information on the site up to date and to add to it; please do send us your thoughts, ideas, suggestions. And best of all, your contributions. Such as stories and photographs for the News, Nature Watch, Pets and History pages, or your themed photographs for the Gallery. There is a contact link in the footer.
The Gallery theme for this edition is SHY/SHYNESS and with this RED/BLUSHING. Here is one from Leslie Duncan of wonderful red poppies – this year in her Ibiza garden:
The theme for June, which should work well with all the wonderful budding countryside this month, is BUDS, BUDDING, BUDDIES – at a pinch BUDLEA! get your pictures in for this topic by the end of May please. Here’s one to get your creative juices going – blackthorn from Caro. Nex month, let’s have some from you of May blossom (hawthorn) – so called because it blooms in May:
PLEASE PLEASE name your pictures on the jpg before you send it – your name and what the picture is if not obvious. In the subject of your email put the page the picture is for. If you want to know how to save your your pictures as Jpgs or to name your photos as you save them, there are guidelines on the Gallery page. It really does help me, as I get hundreds and there is always the risk of attributing yours to the wrong person!
This is where we select a photograph of Beautiful Rhoscolyn from those sent in. This gorgeous red sky over St Gwenfaen’s is from Jo Jones:
